Michigan School Sex Abuse Victims Deserve All of the Assistance and Resources They Can Be Provided

Michigan School Sex Abuse Victims Can Get Justice and Potential Compensation for Injuries


Any sexual contact between a child and a school employee is inappropriate, regardless of consent. 

This can include direct contact between a student and teacher, or a situation where a teacher or other staff member turns a blind eye to sexual abuse by another person on school property. 

Because Michigan schools always have a duty to keep their students safe, any instance of sexual abuse that occurs on campus grounds may demonstrate the school as being negligent.

A Former Student Reveals Details of Michigan School Sex Abuse

A Christian school in western Michigan is called to task by a former student for not preventing her sexual abuse by a teacher and an older student.

The student alleges that the school, The Potter's House, and its leaders failed to comply with protective policies and caused her emotional distress.

She claims that in January 2016, when she was in fifth grade, an artist in residence at the school, James "Jamie" Treadwell, not only sexually assaulted her in his studio, she alleges that the school was informed of sexual allegations against Treadwell but failed to act.

It’s possible that the school had no stated policies at the time and school leaders did not conduct a background check on Treadwell.

In the fall of 2019, Doe was victimized a second time by a high school senior at The Potter's House.

The older student pleaded guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was placed on probation.

Extending the Statute of Limitations for Michigan Abuse Victims

Particularly for Michigan school sex abuse victims, the statute of limitations on child abuse cases in Michigan is considered to be one of the worst in the country.

2016 legislation extended the statute of limitations for sexual assault cases in Michigan by 10 years—previously for first-degree offenses, there was no time limit on when a crime can be reported to authorities.

But after several sexual abuse scandals at a few Michigan universities in recent years, a new bipartisan legislative package has been introduced in Michigan that would allow sexual abuse survivors more time to bring alleged abusers to justice.

Stakeholders would now hold institutions accountable in the long term and require that survivors are informed of their right to access advocates, counselors, and other supports as they navigate through the reporting process.

Who’s to Blame in Michigan School Sex Abuse, the Victim?

If you were sexually abused as a student, you deserve to make sure that both the teacher and the school are known by law enforcement.

The employer of the teacher or other school employee may be held criminally liable for the assault.

However, some experiences simply don’t prove that the school district or supervisors knew or should have known of the sexually predatory tendencies of the school staff member.

This is often established by the evidence of previous complaints about the teacher or circumstances which gave rise to suspicious behavior but were ignored.

We believe Michigan school sex abuse victims—and the families who suffered with them—deserve all of the attention, assistance, and resources we can make available to them.
